Banking & Business

The Perry Law Firm represents commercial banks, their holding companies, savings and loans, credit unions, and a number of other regulated financial institutions. Our experienced team of attorneys has been involved in the formation of new banks and their holding companies, the purchase of branches, intrastate and interstate mergers, sale, liquidation and dissolution of many types of financial institutions. We provide clients with advice on prospective legal issues such as loan documentation, acquisition of security interests in all types of collateral, bank deposits and collections, consumer lending laws, government bonding and finance, and bank regulatory issues. Our team also offers legal services in connection with loan defaults and collections, including debt collection, foreclosure, repossession, creditor representation in bankruptcy, loan workouts, priority disputes between or among lenders, and litigation involving bank deposits, collections, and lender liability.

In addition to advising public, private, or family owned businesses in the original formation and structuring of their organization, our practice also involves assisting those clients in resolving an array of business issues. We work with a broad range of businesses from closely-held, local firms to large corporations, including public corporations, providing assistance in all facets of their commercial transactions.

Our team of lawyers also have a wealth of experience in drafting commercial contracts such as non-disclosure and non-compete agreements, shareholder and stock agreements, licenses, leases, intellectual property licenses, independent contractor agreements, franchise agreements, distributions agreements, supply agreements, purchase contracts, and credit agreements.

While our first commitment is to provide comprehensive counseling to our business clients to help them avoid litigation whenever possible, we recognize there are situations when litigation may become unavoidable. In addition to other areas, we have extensive experience in representing clients involving contract, unfair competition, business agreements, employment, franchise, trade secrets, business torts and intellectual property litigation.
